Venue: Staffordshire University – Stafford Campus (Lecture Theatre 2 – the Octagon building)
This month we welcome Mr Craig Judson from Codeweavers Limited. Codeweavers are a local company, based just outside Stafford in Dunston. They adopted agile techniques in 2007, starting with Scrum and have continued to evolve their agile techniques ever since.
Following graduation from Staffordshire University School of Computing, in 2006, Craig joined Codeweavers as a developer and has since progressed to become an Operations manager. He has previously spoken at international conferences and BCS meetings.
Craig’s talk will discuss how Codeweavers have adapted agile techniques to fit their requirements. A taste of the topics covered are:
- OO and behaviour
- Code smells and ‘if’ statements
- Continuous Integration and Source Control
- Pair Programming and the Pragmatic Programer
- Kanban and Single Piece Flow
- University is only the first step!
As I’m sure you’ll agree, some of the topics could be controversial! Come along and see a hands on report.
Hope to see you there,
